Helping Families Honor the Lives Of Those They Love
Zoe
3/17/2015 - 2/14/2020Zoe came into our family 5 years ago by chance. She was a senior dog that was adopted by my ex-mother-in-law. Three months later my ex-mother-in-law passed away. I took Zoe in only to find her a home, but then realized after two days she was already home. I fell in love with her sweet little smile and gentle nature. I miss her terribly, but every tear I drop is reminder of how much she meant to me and my family.Zoe WalshChicago, IllinoisFebruary 18, 2020
Wallace
Wallace was there during the hardest parts of my life and I feel that he knew when I needed him the most. He will always be in our hearts and memories. He was the best!Lauren Rowechicago, IllinoisFebruary 14, 2020
Bella
12/21/2006 - 1/31/2020Nobody could light up a room, get a person to smile, or relieve a bad day better than Bella. She loved endlessly and she was very loved in return. She completed our hearts and was our confidant for all of our lives ups and downs. There could never be another Bella and we miss her every day. We love you Bella!Deanna GamberdineBloomingdale, IllinoisFebruary 5, 2020
Tucker
6/2/2016Tucker, you were a very special part of our family. I will miss our daily walks in the basement and garage. We seemed to have a deep connection ever since since I laid eyes on you in the shelter in January 2003. I will miss your greetings at the door after a a day of work and I will miss the way you seemed to know my moods and know when I needed you beside me. We all loved you and think about you everyday. You had a strong, fighting spirit, even up until the last week when it was so clear that the cancer had thoroughly weakened you. We love you sweet Tucker. Rest in peace.Valerie ErnstNorth Aurora, IllinoisJune 12, 2016
Cali
3/20/2001 - 4/15/2016How does one describe the most precious of gifts? Maybe it starts with describing the quality of life experienced.....Cali lived an incredible life filled with adventure, energy, love and devotion. She came from a long line of bird hunting and instinctually started pointing birds at a young age. She would go on to hunt with her grandpa until she was 13. In the words of my dad, she was one of the best he ever hunted over and truely a pleasure in the field. Although retired from hunting at 13, Cali would go on to run in fields until her last days. Running, sniffing, exploring was a life Cali could never get enough of. The other side of Cali was that of an attentive, loving, snuggling 35# lap dog. As much as Cali could "turn on the huntress", Cali could equally turn up the "cuddler". She was highly intelligent and very insightful especially with those she loved. Cali knew our moods sometimes before we did and would tend to us appropriately. In the house, Cali was very clear about what she wanted, when she wanted it and always grateful to get her way (which, was often).
Cali lived a full, complete and happy life....and in living, she enriched our days, expanded our love beyond anything we ever imagined, and helped us become better humans. We will forever keep her close, knowing that she was a special gift and a part of us that will never be forgotten.
On angels wings my girl....until we meet again.
With love, gratitude and so much love.....your mamas

Ollie
2/6/2016Ollie was a 13 year old Maltese that we adopted when he was just 10 weeks old. He was not a perfect dog. He had bowlegs, crooked teeth, and a few other imperfections. But he was our dog and a great dog. He provided unconditional love to our family. He was always there for us. He will be missed forever.Joe GoldbergWheaton, IllinoisFebruary 8, 2016
Ludo
2/5/2016Our Ludo came to us one day in a shelter in Tucson, AZ. We went in for a small dog & came out with a big, scared black lab/pit mix. Over his 15 amazing years, Ludo moved across the country with us. He slept in our beds & on the couch. He played with his feline brother Pepper. He loved long walks & chewing up stuffed animals. I can't put into words how much I'm gonna miss him. My house feels so empty without him. My mom & brother & I feel so lost not having him around. Everything just feels so out of balance... But Lap of Love was wonderful. They made a horrible thing, into something bearable. My family wouldn't have been able to do what we did without Dr. Christie & Lap of Love.
My Ludo had a soul too beautiful & too pure to be gone forever.
We all miss him so much...

Rock Cavnar
5/24/2001 - 1/5/2016After giving 14.5 years of pure love, we are deeply saddened to say that our beloved Rock went to Heaven yesterday, leaving his little sister Shenanigans, his three little human brothers, and two heartbroken parents. Rock, a/k/a Rocketdog, the dog of a million nicknames, hailed from a shelter in Rochester Hills, Michigan, and spent his many days in Ferndale, Chicago, and Evanston, and many a summer in northern Michigan. Those who lived above or below him were well-acquainted with his bone-jarring, off-key accompaniment of all sirens, trains, and other emergency vehicles passing through the area. He enjoyed running in the woods, long-jumping off docks, marching in parades, knocking over trash cans, drinking beer with his dad, as well as the unauthorized use of furniture. In his later years, he cherished cozy nights at home with his family, where he patiently let little boys climb all over him. Godspeed, Rocketdog, you are so loved, you are so missed, and we will see you again one day, dear boy.Sam & Shelby CavnarEvanston, IllinoisJanuary 6, 2016
